Liverpool FC has secured a deal with Nigerian Taiwo Awoniyi after signs of interest were also shown by AS Monaco and FC Porto, according to The Daily Mail.
The 18-year-old striker’s initial fee will be about £800,000, but with add-ons it could rise to a £3 million value.
He is also a member of Nigeria’s U23 national team, and previously played for Imperial Academy out of Ijebu Ode.
He told Liverpoolfc.com: “This is the biggest club in the world and I’m privileged to be here.”
Due to work permit technicalities, Mr. Awoniyi was immediately sent out for a first year on loan to 2 Bundesliga side FSV Frankfurt in Germany.
